Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Ian Kinsler homered and drove in four runs as the Detroit Tigers held on for a 7-5 victory over the Cleveland Indians yesterday. Justin Verlander allowed three unearned runs in five innings. The Tigers trailed 3-1 before Kinsler's three-run homer in the fifth off Danny Salazar.

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins won the Presidents' Trophy by leading the NHL with 117 points. The Red Wings had 24 fewer points in the regular season but went 3-1 against the Bruins. That's a sign that Detroit's speedy, puck-possession style can overcome Boston's physical approach.

DETROIT (AP) - There will be more changes for the Detroit Pistons this offseason. The Pistons went 29-53 and missed the playoffs for a fifth straight year. Coach Maurice Cheeks was fired in February. Team president Joe Dumars stepped down this week. That leaves owner Tom Gores in charge of a significant overhaul.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - Gene Fieger shot a 3-under 69 in windy conditions yesterday to take a four-stroke lead in the Senior PGA Professional National Championship. Fieger had a 10-under 206 total at PGA Golf Club in the event. The top 35 on Friday will earn spots in the Senior PGA Championship next month at Harbor Shores in Michigan.
